Tell me…

what is our ending? Will it be beautiful?

I have to say, I usually am not drawn to, a fan of, or all that moved by songs that girls sing. I have no idea why, but they just don’t tend to really capture me and in all honesty, they sometimes annoy me. But this song is different. Is it because I can relate to it so well? I’m thinking that just may be it.

If I am to be truly honest with myself…and to everyone else, I am selfish at times. Even when I don’t think I’m being selfish, a lot of the time, I am. That’s a horrible thing to be. Unfortunately, it’s such a prevalent human tendency and so easy to fall prey to. I certainly do, far too often. What a shame it is. When I think of the level of closeness that I am missing out on with God by being selfish and being consumed with “me”, it makes me really re-evaluate where my priorities are and what I am giving up. Not just what I am giving up, but what I’m giving it up for. Really? I’m really more worried about these “things” than my time and relationship with the Lord? Of course not, but my actions a lot of the time sure seem to suggest that.

I pray that I will become more intentional when it comes to my alone time with the Lord and listening for His voice. I pray that I will learn to tune out the things around me that rob me of my time with Him and learn to focus on what truly matters. I also pray that my boys will see a good example in me of what it means to truly be in love with the Lord and put Him at the center of your life.

At the end of it all, I want to be in His arms.

Here is the video and the lyrics are below it for you to follow along if you’d like.

Oh, tragedy
Has taken so many
Love lost cause they all
Forgot who You were
And it scares me to think
That I would choose
My life over You
My selfish heart
Divides me from You
It tears us apart

So tell me
What is our ending?
Will it be beautiful
So beautiful?

Oh, why do I
Let myself let go
Of hands that painted the stars
And hold tears that fall?
And the pride of my heart
Makes me forget
It’s not me but You
Who makes the heart beat
I’m lost without You
And dying from me

So tell me
What is our ending?
Will it be beautiful
So beautiful?
Will my life
Find me by Your side?
Your love is beautiful
So beautiful

At the end of it all
I wanna be in Your arms
At the end of it all
I wanna be in Your arms
At the end of it all
I wanna be in Your arms
At the end of it all
I wanna be in Your arms

So tell me
What is our ending?
Will it be beautiful
So beautiful?
Will my life
Find me by Your side?
Your love is beautiful
So beautiful

  1. I reflect like this too Danielle. I wonder and pray and seek the much needed forgiveness. My prayer is the same a yours. Thankfully we can know that God does know our hearts! 🙂
